What is osseointegration? It is the process that occurs when bone cells attach themselves to a titanium surface – such as the base of a dental implant. Because the cells bond to the metal, osseointegrated implants can support tooth replacements, offering a natural appearance that feels, acts and looks like real teeth.
This organization is known for its conferences, featuring world-renowned speakers and cutting-edge presentations. Internationally acclaimed, The Academy provides excellence in education and development of dental implant technology and clinical/surgical practice.
By participating in such events, the OMS offices of Crystal Lake, Lake Geneva, Huntley and Burlington keep up to date on the latest techniques, bringing a standard of excellent to our practice and to our patients.
